  • We pulled into A1 after dark at 830PM thinking lucky us...we have a spot! Oops we saw the reserved sign after setting up but we were still lucky to find A8 open. Very level pad with full hookups for $...  more »
  • This review is a bit long- but wanted to give good information on our experience at this campground. When we arrived- there was a park ranger right there to greet us and check us in. She was very nice...  more »

  • Some of the nicest people you will ever meet. There is a set of train tracks and you will hear them, we live next to tracks so the sounds didn't bother us much. It's a tight fit of you are in an RV no doubt about it. We slept in the back of our suv so we didn't have to worry about tents or campers. Once you get passed all that this is one of my favorite places and I wouldn't mind staying here again.
  • Ainsworth State Park is a great destination for a quick camping getaway from Portland. If I have the time I drive a bit farther out of town. But, this is a great place of an over night getaway. Since the entire Gorge can get so crowded I don't visit until after Labor Day. The sites are nice and the hookups dependable. The baths/showers are very well maintained. Make a Reservation, you are unlikely to get a spot with out one.
  • Small campground in a great location near the waterfalls and hiking trails. The campground has flush toilets and showers. There are a few tent-only sites that are a short walk from the parking lot. Some train and interstate noise at night, but the trees help filter some of the noise out.
  • Don't understand how they have an average of 4.4 stars. NOISIEST Campsite we've been to all summer! If you're not in an RV you hear, and feel trains alllllll night! Also tent spots are just and RV spot so they can charge more. Not level for tents, not well managed. Great hikes and site seeing in the area but I'll never stay here again.
  • Has separate campground for campers. There are electric and water hookups for trailers. The facility contains showers with hot water. It is also located close to the Multnomah Falls, and the Oneonta Gorge. The only downside is that the campgrounds is close to the train tracks which can wake you up in the middle of the night.
